Chocolate Dessert Hummus
Yes! You read that right! This is a chocolate hummus recipe & man it is so good! It has my taste buds doing all kinds of tricks. I went to Savannah, Georgia a few weekends ago with one of my roommates for a free yoga event. It turned into a whole day of fun excursions around the city. Somehow, we ended up in an olive oil shop. We ended up there on our way to find a place to eat lunch. We had already made a pit stop to a cat café that has adoptable cats. Since we were already off course we popped into the olive oil shop to browse around. My favorite things about small shops is that they have items that you can’t find anywhere else.I’m also a big fan of trying all the samples. I should know better than to try samples, because if I like it I will 111% purchase said item, like this chocolate balsamic vinegar.
One of the most absurd ingredients I’ve ever seen in hummus. Think back to the first time you made hummus. Remember how you felt when you first read tahini. This is exactly how I felt when I saw balsamic vinegar in this recipe. While browsing around I found recipe cards lying on the table. One of them was chocolate hummus. This is where I adapted this recipe from. As soon as I saw the words chocolate and hummus I knew I had to try it out. Honestly, I was sold on it after tasting balsamic by itself. It had such a wonderful not too sweet chocolate taste.
I like to eat OG hummus with carrots or pepper sticks. For dessert hummus I opt away from typical veggies to mix it up a little. My favorite pairing has been pretzels, they taste like a healthy chocolate covered pretzel. Another great option that is rather popular in the summer-time is strawberries. This is a great option for healthy chocolate covered strawberries—yum!
